American
Designed to reflect a classic boathouse along the Charles River, Prime’s multi-level visual expanse is just the beginning of this destination experience. Dedicated to the expression of modern American cuisine, Prime is the flagship of the Bohlsen Restaurant Group. A custom designed glass wall in the center of our Main Dining Room is an artistic balance to the shimmer of Huntington Harbor just outside our doors. Spend an afternoon in the comfy wood Lounge, compete with a fireplace and luxurious leather couches. Venture out to the fire pit on our intimate Fantail, reminiscent of a boat’s bow. Exquisite water views from the Wave Bar or enjoyed while dining on the covered and seasonally enclosed Porch are a perfect backdrop when sipping Prime’s extensive list of refined signature cocktails.

Took awhile for us to be served. Fruit flies were at our table enjoying the meal as well. Waitress had too many tables to serve and we were not given the attention that we deserved.

My absolute favorite restaurant on Long Island. Went here last night (again) for restaurant week and it always surpasses expectations. My waiter Joe was most helpful with the wine pairings and engaged my wife and I in fun conversation the entire night. Delicious food, spectacular ambiance, and attentive staff. Nothing better!

Normally when I go to Prime for dinner, it must be a very special occasion. Dinners are quite expensive. But their lunch menu is very affordable and you get all the perks of a 5 star restaurant. The ambiance is extraordinary. And our waiter was also over the top. He saw we were celebrating (very quietly I might add) one of my friend's birthdays. He brought over a dessert on the house with a candle. AND he also gave my friend a $25 gift card to be used at another sitting. We really had a 5 star experience.

Not my first visit, but always expect to be impressed. The ambiance is always fantastic, and the craft cocktails are great. The waiter did not seem knowledgeable enough about the menu, and made a poor suggestion. We had to send the steak back and wait a LONG time for the new one to come out. Management was exceptional. They visited the table twice and were commuted to making it right which made us feel much better. We will likely return.

As soon as you walk in the door, you know that you are in for a dining experience. The restaurant is dimly lit and beautifully decorated with a lot of glass, to be able to see the depth of the facility. The wait staff is very professional and personable. The wine list is extensive, yet they could delve into the smaller regions of California wines. Both white and red wine was served at the perfect temperature. You don't get that at many restaurants. The gnocchi with parmesan-white truffle sauce was excellent, with a crispy sear of the gnocchi. The Porterhouse for two was served exactly done to our liking. The Pan Seared Tuna was perfectly seared and the soy butter, cauliflower and mushrooms exploded the taste. Everything was served at the proper temperature and tasted wonderful. We were not rushed through the meal. The entire evening was pleasurably enjoyed and we highly recommend Prime.

Wonderful! Our server was amazing, the food was delicious and served in a timely manner. The menu was creative and everything seemed delicious. Would suggest they have a tasting menu for those of us that are indecisive! The restaurant wasnt too loud so I could hear myself and my husband. Will definitely come back for another date night!

For a first romantic date when you want to impress her, this place was perfect. The place was very quiet for a Saturday night and we had a nice conversation throughout the meal without competing with the crowd noise. The food and service was excellent and the setting was great.

We went to Prime for lunch on Monday and we had the $24 two course price fixed lunch. The bread basket was unremarkable. For the primer my friend had Caesar salad which she liked and I had tomato soup infused with bleu cheese. It was delicious!!! For the entree I had the steak sandwich and my friend had the burger. They were both very good. Both sandwiches were served with fries that were stick thin. I really liked them. We split the cheesecake for dessert. The servers were excellent, very attentive. The restaurant overlooks the marina which is a lovely view and probably even better in the warm weather as there is outside seating.

The good, the bad, the ugh. The good.. The server was very good. Always there to fulfill our requests. The porterhouse for 2 cooked as ordered. Steamed lobster shelled and presented nicely. Awesome 2x baked potato. The bad.. Ordered Parmesan gnocchi with truffle oil. Brought out cold and no truffle oil. Bone in Filet ordered MR. Came out MW. Returned and second time cooked correctly. Fried Artichokes? I could have been eating anything. All you could taste was overpowering used oil taste. The UGH. Ordered a bottle of prosecco. It was served to us room temperature! Out of Shrimp cocktails. Management removed some of the items from check and apologized. Go for the view and drinks early. Even apps. Dinner is hit and miss.

When we arrived a waiter came over and right from the start the service was mediocre. The waiter was friendly but didn't understand how to be attentive and was clearly rushing us. The busboy was rude and actually a bit scary. He was angry about something and anything we asked was a bother. The food was good but WAY overpriced for what you receive. No reason to charge 38 for a sushi roll! or 89 for a rib steak! over the top

I have heard about Prime from others for quite sometime. I do not live in the area so popping in was always out of the question. My wife and I decided to take the drive out for our wedding anniversary. It was well worth the trip. The place is beautiful. The food lived up to the hype and the service was outstanding. Loved it.

We celebrated my son Chaise's 20th birthday . The weather was so nice we dined outside on the deck. The food was amazing , so was the service . Chaise had the Tellers rib eye which is a tomahawk rib eye. He was in his glory . My daughter went with some sushi rolls , I went with a fish special . Everything was plated beautifully . For dessert Morgan and Chaise shared the S"mores Dessert for two. The night was fantastic . A beautiful birthday celebration . I will be back !

Everything was great with one exception, we had 7:30 reservations and got there early to have a drink at the bar and told the hostess what we were doing. At 7:10 she comes over and tells us our table is ready, we said we'd like to finish our drinks at the bar and be seated in 10-15 mins, she gave us the biggest attitude I've ever gotten from a hostess. I assume she thought we would be one of the last tables to leave (we weren't) and we would keep her from getting home early or something, whatever it was she was rude and it was uncalled for in my opinion. We've been there a couple of dozen times and this is the first negative I have to say about the place, other than that a fantastic restaurant I recommend to everyone. Thank you! Rich
